Hogue Cellars Gewürztraminer Columbia Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. We let our Gewrztraminer attain a high level of ripeness before picking. The resultant wine has aromas of lychee and rose petal. The rich palate is medium-bodied, with lychee, true varietal flavors and a spiciness characteristic of Gewurztraminer.The winemakers suggest pairing the wine with Thai curries or dishes with a sweet peanut sauce.

A very pleasant sipping wine, with the typical lychee on the nose, and a comfortable sweetness on the palate.

Mostly Sauvignon Blanc, with 10% Sémillon, this lightly spritzy wine offers crisp citrus and melon fruit, with a tangy, lemony zip to the finish.

Crisp, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc from the Pacific Northwest. Always delicious, always a value…a perennial best buy!

Very fine, full and fruity, this is a remarkably flavorful wine. It captures just a hint of the floral/soapy side of the grape, but brings in delicious fruit flavors of peach and pear and melon and more, a luscious mix that continues to resonate right on through a powerful finish. It's just slightly off-dry, but not really sweet.

Clean as a freshwater spring, this white is slate-mineral at its core, ringed by a honeyed peach nectar at the edges. It finishes tight, with that honeyed buzz that will smoke up roast pork.

Soft and spicy, offering cinnamon, clove, lychee and pear flavors that glide easily through a charming, lightly sweet finish. Drink now.
